Xbox 360 250GB Console (Refurbished)
a great gaming console
i have had ever major game console and most of the major titles for them.so i can honestly say that xbox is the best . its great i have had mine since it came out haven't had any problems. has great exclusives such as halo, gears of war,crackdown, etc. i use it a ton more than my ps3 witch i hate to say cause i have always been a sony man since the original playstation. the xbox online service is really good you get what you pay for. also if your into shooters the xbox is for you with games such as halo call of duty battlefield and other notable titles plus when a map pack comes out for a major game xbox usually gets the map packs week before ps3. as far as the system freezing my xbox has never froze accept in game but that was the game not the system. where as my ps3 (i have a slim ps3)freezes weekly in a game or not. dont get me wrong the ps3 is a great consle however if you only have money for one go with the xbox 360 you wont be disappointed. also it more affordable than the ps3.
This is the best model of any console!!!
just got the new Xbox 2 days ago, refurbished from Microsoft. I already have an other xbox 360 elite, but it stays at my moms house. This xbox right here work perfectly fine, and when you play games you even think the xbox is on. it also has touch sensitive buttons, so no pressing down. Although it can get a bit aggravating if you get a bit close to either of the buttons. Because you might end up accidentaly turn it off or open the disc try. Kinect ready features is in there, and i will use it soon. also be careful that you don't move the console while playing a game. It will screw up the disc. Keep the xbox in a nice area so the air won't bunch up and make it hot, but it does not overheat itself, so thats good. Last but not least, the wifi, it works like a charm, and you setup all your settings before you start any gaming (of course). besides knowing there is a internal removable 250 gb hard drive at the bottom of the console, thats pretty much all of the stuff you need to know.
Good console, much better then the older version
As most of us know the original Xbox was notorious for its technical problems. A console with an average lifespan of 1.5 years really isn't acceptable. The newer xboxs no longer have the same technical problems, have a sleeker design, have greater storage capacity, and built in wireless.
Getting the refurbished console is a great value since it is cheaper, but basically new. This is a great deal if you are looking to get into the Xbox world or looking to upgrade from the older version. However, the next generation of xboxs is just around the corner so if you can wait then maybe that is the best idea.
The console works great and Xbox live is very good although the cost can be somewhat irritating, but great service and benefits don't come for free. I have noticed that the newer consoles are a bit slower to start up then the older ones and have a harder time reading even slightly scratched disks. Luckily there is more then enough space to load your games onto the hard drive if necessary. They are also much quieter then the old consoles and most have automatic shut off features which saves energy if you accidentally leave it on.
Overall great console and a good deal with only some minor flaws in the design and service.
The Xbox 360 Slim is awesome, first of all the reason why I bought a used Xbox 360 was because I wanted to save the money. It's great very quiet and it can easily store my favorite games, it comes with everything you would get in it normally but also it comes with a 2 year warranty because it's used. I would highly recommend buying a used Xbox 360 over a new one but hey that's just me.
Great System, Referb. is Same As New
I just ordered it today, My parents have one for there Buissness so workers can play at break etc. And i think its awesome. They bought a Referb to and it shipped in the same box as new, came with everything also. Save over 60 bucks and buy referb
SUPER FREAKIN AWESOME
I have yet to get one for myself but got one for my uncle's birthday. Sometimes i go to his house and play it it works a whole lot better than the 4gb that i had earlier. All the games work perfectly and no problems at all. I just wish that you could watch movies on netflix without live though. Still it's called your own movies and ordering a movie once or twice a month.
OK i have had the original Xbox 360 ever since it came out and now the disc drive went out after 4 years of game play on my old one so i got it fixed and then all these different problems started to occur so i decided to get this and oh my god i sometimes forget to turn it off its so quiet load times are allot faster and the WiFi is perfect. I would seriously break my black ops disc if i didn't have halo reach.
Great Console!Great Price!
First of all, it is 50 bucks less, (spend it on a game).2nd, it has built in wifi,so no more $80 router.3rd, 250gb hardrive which is more than the 120gb hardrive (max you could get on the old 360). 4th, it is smaller and lighter so it saves more energy.And finally, it has no red ring.Great console.Go and buy it.
It is a little too much for a refurbished.
im a ps3 guy but i am getting a new refurbished 250gb 360. even though this is a new system it still is refurbished and i think they could come off the price another 10-20 bucks.
You might as well buy it refurbished, same quality, 50 dollars off. Stunningly quiet, beautiful, sleek touch sensor design, fits just about anywhere. Worth the money.
